I had a great experience as a volunteer at Good Neighbors USA. The staff is always motivated behind a common purpose to make a positive change in the world, and as an intern, I felt as if I was a real part of that. I valued the experiences I got there that aren't typical of all volunteering; I was entrusted with real responsibilities and always kept in the loop with people of different departments. I think the takeaway from interaction with Good Neighbors is passion: everybody there has it, and if you have it when you come onto the team, it is noticed, nurtured, and utilized. It is in that way that organizations like Good Neighbors can make the world a better place.
